mUzima: The m stands for mobile while uzima is Swahili for life. You do not need to be a developer, an implementer or even an IT expert to be involved; there are several ways to be involved with mUzima:

Contribute Code:


mUzima is developed and maintained by an open source community. We depend on your help to write code that saves lives. You do not need to spend extended time, a few hours to fix a bug, add a feature or solve a ticket is what we need; but if you spend more time you are more that welcome.


Whether you are a developer or not, you can assist in testing our code. There is no perfect code and only through extensive testing can we develop a system that meets our needs.
